Update 18 May 2013 - updated with some detailed photos of battle damage Convoy and comparison of ACT 3 chase figures with their regular counterparts.
Previously, I have talked about the chase figures for ACT 1 and ACT 2. So far, each ACTs' chase figures have been highly desirable, special and has an undeniable place in Transformers lore, mythos and history. The figures for this present ACT 3 is no exception to the iconic status of the chase figures for ACT 1 and ACT 2 and in fact continues to build upon the tradition of using the chase figures to pay homage to key scenes or particular battles in the Transformers animated series.
For ACT3 of the Takara's SCF line, the 2 chase figures are:
- Battle damaged Convoy; and
- Reformatting Megatron.
Notwithstanding the reuse of the Convoy and Megatron molds, these 2 chase figures are once again, steeped in Transformer mythos and significance - they are both homages to scenes in Transformers: The Movie (1986) ("TFTM").
Here they are together.
- Battle damaged Convoy -
This chase figure is a straight repaint of ACT 1's regular Convoy figure. It can be seen that a lot of effort has been spent on the paint applications. Even the 2 windows on Convoy's chest has crack lines on them. And the portion where he got hit by Megatron's laser sword (and later laser-gun) is blackened.
